Sore, Tired, but alive

      

Wonderful tag from Missie's Magical Creations

Well I didn't feel up to posting a thing yesterday. Couldn't keep my eyes on and even fell asleep on the toilet! Today I am semi awake.

Of course surgery couldn't be just cut and dried for me. I have lots of adhesions (scar tissue) in my belly so he had to cut his way to my gall bladder which is probably why I am so sore today. I remember waking up and hearing someone moaning and briefly feeling sorry for them until I realized it was me moaning and I was really really hurting. They gave me some dilaudid, good stuff, and then I started itching all over so they gave me some benadyl, which really made me zonk off, so then they had trouble with my oxygen level, so I had to be woke up and told to breath Julie Breath! Leave me alone I just want to sleep.

Anyway its over and I am home. I am sorer then I thought I would be but it is probably because of the adhesions. Top it off with a really sore throat which is making me cough alot which in turn is making my gut hurt pretty bad, I am not having the best day.

They gave me pictures of my gall bladder. I was going to post them but decided maybe it only seems like such a good idea because I am on drugs so will wait, LOL. The walls of my gall bladder were thick which happens from years of inflamation. No surprise. Also I don't seem to be having any trouble eating, Darn. I was hoping to lose my appetite for a few months. Sigh, I can always eat. So anyway, time for bed. I am having a hard time staying awake.

I am glad you made it through surgery. Now I hope you have a quick recovery. Hoping tomorrow will be better for you. I have to take benedryl also with pain meds and I had to do that with the dilaudid when I had shoulder surgery. Helen
